I still don't personally think Harvey Pekar and Dwayne McDuffie are in quite the same league of posthumous achievements. Just that one of them is more recently mourned.

I feel bad that Bokurano won now since it just won because no one expressed any love for anything else.

All of you who didn't vote for Return of the Dapper Men? I judge you. Mostly because it is the only contender in the category Graphic Novels That Made Me Cry (In A Good Way). (It also wins Favorite Christmas Present I Did Not Technically Receive. Stealing books is what siblings are for!)
